Zhiguli crashed directly into the gasoline tank of the car of police officers then it turned over and lit up. The policemen died on the scene.
“Information which appeared in social networks is not a factoid, neither a fake. It is true, a tragedy happened in the city district Polevskoy near village Poldnevaya,” representative of the regional Ministry of Internal Affairs commented.
He added that as a result, violators were detained by another response team. Investigators are working on the scene.
According to the Russian MIA’s spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, the detention of Russian woman Maria Butina in the US was specifically timed to coincide with the summit of Putin and Trump in order to minimize the effect of the presidents’ meeting.
